Everything you should know about Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

"I solemnly swear that I am up to no good..."

Apologies in advance to those of you that are not Potter fans but I couldn't wait to share this with you guys...

I had the very special privilege
 last weekend of catching a preview of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child ahead of its official release this Sunday, 31st July.

As such, I have created a SPOILER FREE summary of everything you should know before you go. Perhaps you have already got your tickets and are super excited to learn more or maybe you're not sure whether or not you can justify the hefty costs involved with attending two plays in London's West End!

Hopefully I can answer your questions for you and put your mind at ease...

What if Pokémon Go was Disney?


Apologies for the lack of posts recently; I've been a little preoccupied on holiday enjoying the beautiful Spanish rays, and a tan is not all I've been catching...

I have recently acquired a new hobby, one that I am sure I am not alone in:

It has literally taken over my life. 

I have evolved from Mercedes Lois Bull, 25 year old female living in Hove and complete devotee to all things Disney into, Username: MercedesLois, a 25 year old, accident-prone zombie who likes wandering aimlessly around the South of England and has become a little bit of a 'Pokémon-hunting' extraordinaire!

I really am obsessed.
I have been reading the coverage on the world's most popular gaming app and what I keep stumbling across is news on how popular the app has been at Disney parks

It's unsurprising really; a large group of fun-loving fanatics, all vacationing at 'the happiest place on earth', standing around in queues all day and walking for the rest of the time... of course such a time-waster and on this large a scale, with such an active nature, would be an instant hit with 'park-goers'.

This Fairy Tale Life
has even produced the ultimate guide to Pokémon Go at Disneyland which you can read here!

This Fairy Tale Life's Guide to Playing at Disneyland

Over at WDW Info, they've gone a step further and discussed whether or not they believe it would be viable or even profitable for Disney to create a Pokémon Go style app in the future which you can read more about here

Unsurprisingly, my overactive imagination has already gone a step further than that and thought what it would be like if Pokémon Go was Disney inspired...

imagine the characters you could capture.
